Do Serious Breast Lumps Move Around

Although I have three lumps according to my doctor I can only feel one. The main one I have by my nipple seems to potrude/stick out more at certain times of the day or if I rub it - it is also squishy and soft. Sometimes i cant feel it as much as other times but it is def there. Any ideas please.
